Gotland is the largest island in the Baltic Sea. It has the smallest population of Sweden's counties, 57500. Unlike all other Swedish counties, Gotland is not divided into smaller administrative areas (municipalities). Fårö Island and a few other smaller islands also belong to the county. The main city, Visby, was founded in approximately 1000 AD, and is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
